[ C7] New Rule App - Timeout on Wait-Can't detect "not waiting"

When using the %device% variable to detect a timeout on a "wait" for condition (using RM5--the new one), the behavior when there is "no wait" (because the condition was already satisfied) appears to be the same as if the wait timed-out.

It seems that, in this case, the "%device%" should be set to the same value as if the wait "waited" and was satisfied (or "nowait"--in any case, something other than "timeout").

Here are some log entries showing the scenario:

And, here's the test rule:

Thoughts? What is the expected behavior and what is the best way to detect the difference between "no wait" and "timeout"?

In the case that the Conditions are already true when the rule runs, there is no way to know what the relevant device might be to set %device%. What could happen is for %device% to be set to "no wait". Would that work for you?

Yeah, that would be awesome--as that would be a clear indication that the wait was satisfied in advance.

Thanks a bunch!!
